Wonderful Pack
I've owned and used Duluth Packs for the past 30 years. They have been on numerous outdoor adventures and have never failed.
Whether the Boundary Waters or "fly-in" fishing trips in Canada the #3 is rugged and easy to load and unload. Friends are amazed at the amount of gear it holds and many have converted to Duluth Packs.
Try one and you'll be wondering what took you so long!

old is best
I was given a #3, which turned out not always big enough; I later bought a
#4. Either one is a great pack. And they are tough! For me, packs with pockets, inside dividers or sections, are a nuisance: I like a great big bag that holds everything organized in stuff bags. (The more bells and whistles, the more that can go wrong.) I use both bags almost exclusively for canoe camping in northern Maine.

Pack that is used for everything
This simple pack is the most functional bullet-proof pack made. The others can harp about the features and bells and whistles, they can have them. For me time is the true test and the Duluth Pack will win every time. I will put my old Duluth Packs up against any brand new pack from others and mine will be the one coming home from every trip. Pay a little extra, yes, but in the long run inexpensive. If you want a cheap throw away bag don't buy this one it will not die. Review by Grant (Posted on 8/16/2012)
Best pack around
I've taken this bag on dozens of canoe trips into Lake of the Woods and the Boundary Waters and it has served me well on all of those trips! This pack has been shown some tough love, and it has stood up extremely well - barely a scratch on it! Other packs that have all those random compartments that don't really fit anything well and usually tear are a forward: plenty of space to fit everything you need and built to hold up against anything that you throw at it. Totally worth every penny! Review by e.fulton (Posted on 8/16/2012)
Great for deer hunting
The Hunter's Orange option is great for deer hunting! Review by gavin (Posted on 8/16/2012)
Great, classic bag for the BWCA
We bought this bag for our canoe trips on the return trip from our first year in the BWCA about 7 years ago and it has held up really well! The only wish I have is that it had a couple of zippered pockets inside for smaller items that are waterproof but tend to get lost in the big bag. Review by bjr (Posted on 8/16/2012)
Best all-around canoe pack out there
I've owned an original Duluth Pack for about twenty years and it still looks practically brand new. I love how rugged it is, how well it lays in the bottom of my cedar-strip canoe, keeping a low center of gravity, and the size. You can fit an entire weekends worth of gear in it. Best pack I've ever owned! Review by Nate (Posted on 8/16/2012)
Most useful pack in existence
You'll never find a better canoe pack. Sits properly in a canoe, holds everything you need, is easy to get into and lasts forever. Review by Outdoor Nut (Posted on 8/16/2012)
Tried and True
No "new techs" can beat a Duluth Pack. Lasts forever, holds everything. Rides perfectly in a canoe and goes on every hunting trip. Classic, well made and versatile. Review by Canoe Crazy (Posted on 8/16/2012)
40+ years old and still kicking
Bought one of these "Minnesota" Duluth Packs when I was about 20, now at 63 is is still working great, though I don't fill it as much as I used to. Great for X-country skiing into a remote campsite. Could fill it to the point I couldn't put it on myself ! BEST EVER! Review by Doug (Posted on 8/16/2012)
